Bounding box suddenly disappears using Selection Tool
Suddenly disappears, but when a select scale then select the "Selection Tool" again the Bounding box reappears. When it is gone, togglingthe quick key, has no effect though t changes the menu state for turning it on and off. Also, when it can't be seen, a small icon for the bounding box is in the corner, occasionally.
Sound familiar to anyone else?
I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 23.0.6 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.
You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html
Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

SAME PROBLEM AFTER MOST RECENT UPDATE. I find i'm now having to hold ctl to view the bounding box....
bounding box for text wont allow me to reshape it to make it larger and fit the page.... ???? HELP!!!!

Thank you Mike L!! That was it. I had accidentally pressed the keyboard shortcut for hide edges, because Command H (which hides other apps and I use it all the time) hides edges in Illustrator on a Mac. Not sure about PCs.
SO FRUSTRATING!! ADOBE PLEASE FIX THIS!
Crazy...I did this: turned on the smart guides (which drive you crazy) in View, then turn off. Now, voilá, I can see the direct selection anchors.
Please, make it easier ti grab the bezier handles! I do not see the point in keeping them so small!!?

Ugh, I am in the same boat. I am restarting every few minutes at this point and wasting so much time, not to mention getting extremely frustrated due to looming deadlines and increased work time!
Working with text nearly impossible. Can no longer create a bounding box that works. I have abandoned projects and started new ones; quit Ai and reopened multiple times -- but the bug just keeps getting worse. Help!!!
This worked for me:
Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+B or Go up to View and click Show Bounding Box to bring that feature back
Thanks for the help!
I am also experiencing this as well as many other bugs in the new updates. Seriously Adobe, I love you but stop with all the updates and bugs, just be reliable and don't suck!
I am also having the same issue! I tried force quitting Illustrator and restarting it, but that did nothing. Restarting my laptop seems to work for a little while, but the issue always starts up again. This is very frustrating!!

When I select a stroke with the Select Tool (V), the horizontal bounding box nodes are no longer available, making the scaling of a stroke not possible like it used to be. Is this a bug, or is this a preference setting that just needs to be fixed? Please advise. Until then, my workaround is using the Free Transform Tool. My co-worker (another graphic artist) does NOT have this issue and still has the side nodes, so he can still grab the sides and elongate the stroke from either side (like a shape). I suspect he may be running a slightly older version of Ai though...Any help/insight would be much appreciated. Thanks! Chris
(Bounding Box is set to visible)
I noticed to often right now — also after resetting illustrator completely multiple times — If I want to select a Text Box or other shape/object Illustrator don't select it and don't show any Bounding Box. (Again Bounding Box is set to visible and turning it off and on don't fix the problem).
Pleeeeeeeease fix this.

Adoble Illustrator 2019. The bounding box feature is not working.
Cannot select anchor points in Adobe CC2018. Marquee select does not work, turning bounding box off and on does not work, all elements and layers are unlocked ... software is unusable with this bug.
Quit Illustrator and then reset preferences by restarting and holding down shift option command (Mac). Still couldn't select anchor points in existing document, but I created a new document and copied and pasted existing artwork into it and anchor points worked as they should.
